Jefferson Postdoctoral Association

Technical Skills Seminar Series

The Jefferson Postdoctoral Association Technical Skills Seminar Series (TSSS) is a monthly seminar series aimed to provide a technical update on any biological laboratory bench approach or research-associated approaches, such as bioinformatics, statistics, or science communication, to the research community at Jefferson.

In addition, TSSS presents the opportunity for postdocs and other researchers to discuss with experts around these topics. The JPA also encourages and welcomes Jefferson's postdocs to present their technical skills, first to improve their communication skills and second for better knowledge exchange between Jefferson's postdocs and other researchers; compensation will be given to all Jefferson postdoc speakers.

Jefferson Postdoctoral Association has hosted monthly technical seminars for many years on a variety of topics. Here is a sampling of those seminars.

  • Advanced Workshops on BioRender features
